Raipur, Jan 06 (ANI): Chhattisgarh's former chief minister Ajit Jogi's son Amit Jogi has been expelled from Congress for six years in connection with the Chhattisgarh tape row. The decision was taken by the Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress Committee(PCC) today. Amit Jogi said he is hurt by the decision of the Congress Party of suspending him for six years. He also said that the decision is taken without evaluating the facts, and so it is an illogical and unjustified decision. He further stated that this decision is not final and he will appeal to the supreme powers of the Congress Party, as he has full faith on Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice-president Rahul Gandhi.
